    I wasn’t expecting much because these movies are, well, pretty much the most benign entertainment possible. This was no exception, as predictable as tomorrow’s sunrise, yet not offensive. Gladys was kind of creepy. I don’t know if she was speaking so slowly to exaggerate her screen time downstairs, she’s recently had a stroke, or this is just her current method of acting. It was exceptional in that the amount of people of color was higher than usual. I counted three, but it might’ve been four. I hope Patti‘s is more fun

    I share your opinion. These types of movies are full of nothing - except padding - and can usually be told in fifteen minutes. Perhaps that is why Gladys was speaking so slowly - to fill a two hour time slot. Gladys also seemed to have a constant smile on her face. I had to watch it because I am a Gladys fan, but I can't say that I enjoyed it. I noticed in the credits that Gladys and Susan De Passe were listed as executive producers.
